Cardiff Crown Court has heard that a mother accused of murdering her son said it was her husband who used to beat him. Sara Ege said she also suffered abuse from Yousef Ali Ege. She described intervening to stop her husband beating her son but says she was injured herself.
A mother who beat her son before setting his body on fire will serve a minimum of 17 years in prison, after being jailed for life. 33-year-old Sara Ege killed Yaseen Ali Ege, 7, at the family home in Pontcanna, Cardiff in July 2010.
